Wipe Your Paws

Between my chihuahua, my husband, and my kids, my front door gets a lot of traffic.  So I need an entry mat I can wash and swap out often due to wear.  I also want one that's welcoming.  That's why I love Crate and Barrel's Party Turquoise Mat.  At $19 (was $39), it's pretty but not too precious for my family's paws.

Rachel Is Sleeping Pretty


Buying a new bed frame and headboard can be last on our furniture to do list. It's pricey and very few people ever see it anyway. But, it doesn't have to be so expensive, believe it or not. Spring for the gorgeous headboard, but keep your old metal bed frame and use a great looking bed skirt to finish it off. Try Bloomingdale's Hudson Park Italian Percale Bed skirt, on sale for $99.99 down from $145. It will give your bed that crisp, finished look it deserves.

Kelsey Decorates Outdoors


For all of those lucky ducks out there with an outdoor space to enjoy this summer, check out CB2's Sophia Dining Chairs. All you need is one or two of these babies, an accent table between, and your favorite bottle of wine to create the perfect hangout. They are even weather resistant so no need to be covering and uncovering every time you want to use them. Were $99.95, now only $49.99. That's a two for one deal, perfect!

So Soft!

Wool rugs can be so scratchy.  Flatweave rugs are too rough.  But Overstock's Amelia Multi-Stripe Rug is just right--especially at $197 (was $365) for the 8' x 10' size.  I used it last week for a Marine Park, NY client.  If I didn't already have a rug, I'd be snapping this one up with a quickness for myself!

Kelsey Loves These Geometric Gems


With all of the beautiful weather we have been having, I was inspired to brighten up my own apartment with a few purple accents. Check out Horchow’s Alandha Hexagons Pillows--the hexagons are my favorite. They were $125 and now only $80. Get them while you can!
